Timeline Help

I've posted this over in the KotOR section, but I thought I'd get more help here. I'm working on a new story, but I need some help with the canonised timeline. I've managed to piece together a half-decent one, but it doesn't cover much of the post-RotJ stuff. I don't really trust Wookiepedia for this kind of thing - sure, it's alright for the odd reference, but not for the amount of research I need to do for this fic.

I was hoping that some of the people here could help me fill in the post-RotJ stuff, up until about 130 ABY. And if anyone can give me an exact year for the death of Luke Skywalker, that would be great, too - but from what I could find, there isn't a specific date given. I've set it to c. 60 ABY for the purposes of my story.

Here's a copy of what I have so far. As I said, it's not half bad so far, but I need some help.

3,976 BBY (4116 BDA) - The Mandalorians began attacking worlds on the Outer Rim.

3,965 BBY (4105 BDA) - The Galactic Senate declares war on the Mandalorians.

c. 130 ABY (10 BDA) - Rise of the Second Galactic Empire.

c. 140 ABY (0 BDA) - Great Plague; Collapse of Galactic Civilization; Second Galactic Dark Age begins.

For now, just ignore the BDA references, as well as terms such as 'Palpatinian'. You can guess what most of them are.
